hang on Remove Useless Rom

Post by Michelle911 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 6:43 am

not sure I want to spam the bug tracker without checking here first, so... seems like romcenter is hanging on removing useless roms. I get to this point where it says "remove useless rom" in the log window and it doesn't progress from this point (it should not take more than a couple hours right? lol). also when I turn it off the setting in the options it's still comes to "remove useless roms" and hangs there. I'm trying to fix up an older split rom set to unmerged for roms bios and samples, for mame 174.

Hi
I never experienced or heard that problem.
Can you
  • Run romcenter and raise the problem
  • zip and post the C:\ProgramData\romcenter\romcenter_xml.log file
Thanks

I have this problem also.

But it only happens when I select only the yellow colored roms in the middle window then right click on any yellow rom and select fix.

If you select the rom folder in the left window and right click fix then if never freezes. It only happens when you select only the yellow
roms in the middle window to fix.

(sorry but I don't know how to enclose an romcenter_xml zip file into this report.)

Thanks for the tip, guest.
I was staring at the "remove useless rom" screen and thinking I just need to be patient.
Right clicking on the rom files window and chosing fix, does the trick
